Peloponnese tour itinerary

This castle Bourtzi in Nafplion.

We start off by driving down to the beautiful coastline of Corinth. Our first stop is at the Corinthian canal. We will make a stop here to look at the canal and if we are lucky we might see a ship going through the isthmus. After the canal we will go to Ancient Corinth. The site itself is very beautiful. This is where St. Paul preached to the Corinthians. The site of Corinth is influenced by Roman architecture. Here you will see the Octavian temple and the Lechaion Way. Ancient Corinth also has a beautiful museum which is known for its beautiful amphorae. After seeing the site of Ancient Corinth we head towards Acrocorinth which is 4 km (2.5 miles) above the main city.

From there we travel through the farmland and pass through small villages. As we travel we will see many apricot trees, olive trees and vineyards. The Peloponnese region grows some of the best olives and grapes. After that we will reach Ancient Nemea where the ancient Nemean Games were held. Nemea is surrounded with vineyards. From Nemea we head to ancient Mycenae. There you will see the tomb of Agamemnon and the ancient city of Mycenae, which was discovered by Heinrich Schliemann in 1870. After seeing Mycenae we drive down to Nafplio "the old Venetian town" which was re-built by the Venetians in the 16th century and was the first capital of Greece. We will have lunch there by the seaside. Then we can visit the famous castle called "Palamidi".

On the way from Mycenae to Nafplion you will see the olive trees. On the way from Mycenae to Nafplion you will see the orange groves.

We continue our tour by traveling through many orange fields and olive trees in order to reach Epidavros. When we get there we will see the ancient theatre of Epidavros which was built in 4 B.C. and is known for its great acoustic sound. The theatre is used today by Greek actors who perform various ancient Greek plays. You will also see the Sanctuary of Asklipeios and the beautiful museum of Epidavros.

After seeing Epidavros we travel through the Corinthian mountains and we can make a stop at this nice cafe that has a beautiful view of the picturesque town of Epidavros. We can have some Greek frappe with ice-cream or a cappuccino. When we are done enjoying our coffee/desert we begin heading back to Athens.
